OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - Former Republican Rep. Lee Terry, who represented Nebraska’s Omaha-centric congressional district, has found a job at a District of Columbia law firm on K Street, home to many of the city’s influential lobbying firms.

Terry says he has been hired as a senior adviser at the government relations and public policy firm.

Under federal law, members of the House must wait one year after leaving office before engaging in lobbying activity.

Like many former members of Congress, Terry’s new job will see him advise clients on legislative matters during his cooling-off period, during which he cannot have direct contact with lawmakers.

Terry served 16 years as Nebraska’s 2nd District congressman, but lost his bid for a ninth term in November to Democrat Brad Ashford.
